Virtual meetings are the lifeblood of the virtual team, yet we hear the same challenges over and over again: late starts, later finishes, private agendas, loss of control by the meeting facilitator, and multitasking by disengaged attendees.
These common problems cost your organization lost productivity, missed deadlines, and potentially thousands of dollars due to a poorly run virtual meeting. In order to be effective, these meetings must be well organized, efficient, and structured. This session details techniques that will optimize any virtual meeting.
At the end of the session participants will be able to:
- Identify the skills needed to effectively facilitate a virtual team meeting
